Before building something, I wish to present it, for criticism. I need to be able to keep the ROW that we have cleared, open. There are places it grows like a jungle, quickly. Ideally, it would be best to do maintenance, etc on the ROW, but we are not there yet. I need a good solution, cheap, simple, light, and quick. I need to do this, to keep manpower on moving forward, or other projects. The basic idea of what I'm thinking is mounting a bar on a rail vehicle. Off this bar, mount chains, to drag on the ROW. This would remove what is there, and discourage weeds. I want it light enough, it can be removed at each end, and on the the other side. I don't want it to tear up any remaining good ties, or crossings. One person thought chain link fence. I think that might get caught up on something. Having individual chains, might avoid this. My other thoughts is a salt and vinegar solution applied to the ROW. We would need a tank car to apply it, which we don't have. Also, all locomotives, even #3 have made it to the roundhouse.
